Terrace Edge is an organic family vineyard overlooking the Waipara River in North Canterbury. Purchased by the Chapman family in 1999, the property was originally a sheep farm before land conversion began the following year and 2000 olive trees were planted on the lower terrace. Much like the growing of excellent wine, the development of Terrace Edge itself required a hands-on approach and the entire Chapman family has been involved in every aspect of the business.

Q&A with Jill Chapman from Terrace Edge

Why North Canterbury? North Canterbury has a number of smaller family producers doing exciting things, I love how we are a tight knit group supporting each other to keep doing what we love.

What’s your favourite thing to do in North Canterbury? There is not many things I love more than getting out on my ride on mower (which I got for my birthday) and cutting the grass around the tasting room. Sad, but true – so satisfying

Name your top three North Canterbury brands (other than your own!). This is like choosing bridesmaids for a wedding! There might be tears –  so I will just pick one. I can’t go past our friends doing great things down the road – The Bone Line.
